|Map Editor Questions (4) | Posted on May 26, 2011, 10:51 p.m.|
|1) I'm honestly not sure as I experimented much with individual upgrades, try dedicated editor forums like SC2 Mapster: http://forums.sc2mapster.com/|
2) To change the carrier's maximum capacity for interceptors you could have to modify it's magazine size to what you want. To modify characteristics in general it should be under the unit, the carrier's magazine size for interceptors is a behavior I believe.
3) As for cliffs you cannot create stairways which instantly go up a height of two, you have to have a space in between each if that's what you're meaning.

|Unique units and abilities (7) | Posted on May 22, 2011, 11:29 a.m.|
|There is actually a lot of interesting things if you look into the editor and search around, for example there are abilities set up that allow you to drain health and energy from enemy units, one of which has (infestor) as a part of the title. Other things include some excluded upgrades like viking range (which I assume sets vikings to their current in-game range) and some other unused upgrades, especially for protoss.|

Stim Pack requires Fusion Core.
I see it only fitting since Adrenal Glands require Hive Tech
I'd love a permanent passive Stim Pack.
|Terran now requires more micro than Zerg in ZvT (23) | Posted on May 21, 2011, 2:08 p.m.|
Zerg micro basically involves right clicking Speedlingspast Terran ball armies and trying to get a surround while directing Banelings at Marines. Pull back if you're getting owned.
Roaches pretty much operate on the same principle since they attack slowly and have short range, meaning you have to really hug your opponent and hope you have more Roaches than they have "stuff". Burrow micro can get fancy, but Toss armies always have Observers with them anyways, so it's not as effective as blink.
Mutalisk control is easy since they're so fast, but requires a lot of attention since Mutas die to everything that shoots up.
Infestors are probably the easiest casters to use because FG is insta-cast and negates your opponents micro.
ZvZ Ling/Baneling wars are probably the most intense micro present in SC2, at least that I can think of.
Early game harass against you requires micro in many ways too, which are very hard to generalize.
This is all very general btw.
No idea how hard Terran micro is since I don't play them that much, but people seem to overcomplicate Zerg micro a lot.
Thank you for posting in a level headed manner that isnt mud slinging and chest pounding mixed in with ad hominem attacks. I think everything you've said is a pretty true. Honestly I don't think any of the races are as difficult as people perceive them to be, Terran included.

what to do when you get older

can't imagine what career a pro takes at age 30
They become a apart of the korean military and devise strategies that will allow them to micro their soldiers more effectively. Ever see those movies about how some top government agent takes down a giant crime syndicate? Thank Starcraft.

Thors back on energy is the worst thing that could have ever happened.
Now they're actually balanced units, they can be fedback and I can't spam strike cannons on immortals and colossi anymore.
I honestly do not think strike cannons are an effective solution to colossi. It seems they always just die before strike cannon is finished so the colossi still survives.
All this change means is that I now have to produce a stupid amount of ghosts to EMP my thors because of the 100 energy change. That, or I'll have to strike cannon a marine as a sacrifice to the pagan gods.

Decent. The tools are powerful, but people are still learning how to use them. As a result there are plenty of games but currently most of them are remakes of sc1 or wc3 custom maps.
Yeah, you won't be seeing a lot of the really remarkable things for a bit. It's pretty amazing how much easier it is to manipulate things in the SC2 editor than Blizzard's previous editors though. And the fact that unit's models arnt horrible close up is a definite bonus. The big projects are on their way.

|so what games are you playing when your not playing SC2? (8) | Posted on April 28, 2011, 5:10 p.m.|
is last remnant fun
I found it fun up until the point I realized that leveling was actually counter productive, since enemies scale faster as you level, meaning the game becomes harder if you play it for too long. Otherwise it was fun and at least a bit creative for the short time I played it. I'll have to give it another try some other time. Also it was really annoying having to use a controller setup on PC..
